Collection: Post War

The Post War style homes are simple and modern in design, and usually made from weatherboard, asbestos cement or brick veneer. Materials were scarce during this time, reflecting both the economic constraints and the move towards contemporary designs. Building forms were simple with limited embellishments, set well back from the street with skillion, flat or butterfly roofs, metal casement windows, weatherboard cladding and few plaster or cornice moulds.
Our extensive range of post war / 1940’s profiles can be produced from:
  • Moisture Resistant Medium Density Fibreboard (MRMDF)
  • Finger Jointed Pine
  • Clear Pine
  • Oak
  • Western Red Cedar
  • Kiln Dried Hardwood (KD Hardwood)
